Being a Colorado Native, I chose this wonderful city to live in currently. I love Littleton because of its convenience. Littleton is truly the best of both worlds, being 20 minutes from the beautiful foothills, and 20 minutes from the heart of Downtown Denver.
Littleton's city population was 41,737 at the 2010 United States Census, ranking as the 20th most populus municipality in the State of Colorado.
The city of Littleton's history dates back to the 1859 Pike's Peak Gold Rush, which brought not only gold seekers, but merchants and farmers to the community. Richard Sullivan Little was an engineer from New Hampshire that made his way out west to work on irrigation systems. Little soon decided to settle in the area at present day Littleton and brought his wife Angeline out from the East in 1862. The Littles, along with many neighbors, built the Rough and Ready Flour Mill in 1867, which provided a solid economic base in the community. By 1890, the community had grown to 245 people and the residents voted to incorporate the Town of Littleton.*
